The wait is finally over.
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s iconic Broadway production Hamilton will be touching down in Australia in March 2021. The show’s arrival was announced by New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian.
The musical tells the story of US founding father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant who climbed the ranks to become the nation’s first treasury secretary. The show is well-known for its soundtrack of hip hop, jazz, blues and rap songs.
Premiering on Broadway in August 2015, the show has since nabbed 11 Tony Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album. Since its debut, Hamilton has made the rounds in the US and London’s West End, picking up additional accolades along the way.
The Aussie show will be overseen by the original Broadway producer Jeffery Seller and Aussie producer Michael Casser, who also works on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Casting and ticketing information hasn’t been released as of yet.
Hamilton will be landing at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre in March 2021. For more information, head to the musical’s website.
